What a lovely arboretum in every way. The signage is excellent and the variety of specimens is large. Be sure to catch the Vietnam Memorial in the Hoyt.

Go to the visitor's center to get great information and hiking recommendations. Lots of free parking options. Many wonderful trails and connections to Washington Park and Forest Park. This is a wonderful place to roam around, hike and jog.

Trails go everwhere. You can use a map but if like us (we run for an hour) you can keep looping and with the well marked trails and maps you can't really get lost.

Wear good shoes and be ready to walk. A number of places in Washington Park to start a hike but all paths lead thru here. Lots of paths so get a visual guide as it is easy to get lost.

During a very hot day of Portland, we got there. It is quite and beautiful and you can enjoy the nature in the middle of a city. Woods are gorgeous and well maintained trails are interesting. We even took the stroller through the trails!!!!!!!!!!

This is a wonderful place to see with a variety of landscapes, including Redwoods. The trails can be easy and short to long.

Visited this arboretum after being unable to park anywhere near the rose garden. The arboretum is large, and most of the trees are labelled. There is some wheelcahir accessibility, but it is limited. There is a good variety of trees and shrubs.

This isn't the sort of park with a few paved pathways and some plants with informative labels. In order to see the different trees and plants, you have to take one or more of the hiking trails (the shortest takes nearly an hour and does...More

You can take a bus from the Zoo station up to the visitors center "Tree House". Service is infrequent in the winter for the number 63 so be sure to check a schedule or the wair can be nasty! I like the Conifer side of the... More
